    Hi all I am a total newb when it comes to writing so please forgive me and I will try and make this as basic as possible.

    1. Firstly choose a niche, I like to use something that is easy to promote on bookmarking sites such as reddit because this is where we will get most of our traffic from. e.g gadgets or tech related.

    2. Register a domain and get some hosting for creating your wordpress autoblog and slap on a decent looking theme not too flashy, but also not too plain. This is my site I created and flipped take a look: www.gadgetech.org

    3. Do all the basic plugin installations such as SEO etc and either purchase and invest in the autoblogging WP-Robot plug-in or try and find a cracked version (its around here somewhere if I remember).

    4. Install Google analytic code which can be done via a plug-in in wordpress to gather stats that you will need later for flipping purposes.

    5. Now comes the bit where we will harvest URL's where we can get rss feed content to automatically update our blogs with. Go to your Google reader (http://www.google.co.uk/reader)[​IMG]
    Click on add subscription link and search for e.g 'gadgets', now you will get a list of results from which you can choose a few. Try to choose ones that have not too many subscribers or else its easier for people to recognize when you link your posts to reddit.

    6. Once you have found a few look at the feed url that is written below and copy and paste that for entering into WP-Robot. [​IMG]

    7. Enter a couple feeds into WP-Robot and start fetching to create a few initial posts and then set it to automate using cron jobs to perhaps check every other day for new posts.

    8. Start promoting your posts a few at a time, look for a interesting post that reddit community would like and submit that on reddit.com under the correct section. For this you have to experiment and try and find something that is cool and not been posted soon enough you will get some upvotes and it can easily go viral as this has happened to many times. (Screenshot below for proof) This is when my site was on its old domain infinity-sites.com

    9. Before you know it you will get traffic coming from all over the place as it happened to me without doing any promotion. People see the content like it and refer it on. You will get traffic from social networks etc. Later on organic traffic will start coming in from long tail keywords that will boost your stats and if you keep getting a decent stream of visitors your alexa rank will drop nicely.

    10. Once the stats begin to look good give it a few weeks you can just put this site up on flippa and sell it on. I managed to get $170 for this site and I said specifically that I am making no money but you can if you add adsense or amazon to the site. Because the stats are so good and you have proof of your traffic coming in it will sell easy on flippa! (Proof of sale below and traffic screenshots)

    Please feel free to ask if it is not clear because I want to help.

    A cron job is run from your hosting c-panel basically it will automatically run after a certain set period and automatically complete an action. The action we will use is to automatically search for new feed posts and post them into Wordpress.

    I assume you will be using c-panel for your hosting then please check this tutorial from my hosting provider which you will find useful. Step by step with images shows how to set cron jobs in c-panel. http://www.siteground.com/tutorials/cpanel/cron_jobs.htm
    Make Sure You Change The URL To The URL You Find At The Bottom Of The wp-robot 'Options' Screen

    I am not entirely sure but I know there are scripts available some even on this forum if you search which can do it on Blogspot.

    Learning WP in not too hard trust me just install it and mess around with the settings you will get the hang of it in no time. ;)

    Another nice posting. Your all content comes from RSS so do you use any rewrite plugins for safe your website from panda ? I want to know that.

    When I did this method I did not use any rewrite plugin but I think it is best to use it now after panda as I still have analytic linked to the site even though it has been sold and its gets less visitors than before panda for organic results.

    But still it can manage around 100/visits per day mostly organic which for no rewrite and full dupe content is not bad and can still be attractive to flippa buyers.

    If I still had the site it would have a lot more visitors because I would keep promoting posts with social bookmarking, but the new owner doesn't bother lol :eek:

    Sure the plugin I remember from top my head that I used where:

    -All in one SEO
    -WP Robot (of course) free you can try this http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/blogging/219372-free-auto-blogging-software.html
    -DDSiteMapGen (create sitemap for big G)
    -Easy Adsense (If you want monetize)

    I created the site around 1st week of December 2010 and within 1 month of promoting I got easy 10k visitors

    you can see in the screenshot I posted the from Dec to Jan 20th I got 15k visits and I made and started tracking the blog in Dec!! :)

    I just remember WP-Robot has TBS api built into it, so in the settings you can set it to spin the posts.

    Code:
    Automatic Rewriting. WP Robot supports two powerful rewriting APIs, one of which being the popular TheBestSpinner.com software, which can be used to rewrite all content produced by WP Robot automatically and make it unique to your site!

    Thank you for your comments :) This is the first method I did to create my first bank on the internet just last year.

    Now I use different method to do with insurance and CPA to make my bank ;)

    This method is still good I reckon and soon in few weeks I will try to do it on larger scale and see how much bank I can make. Everything with screenshots will be posted here to try and prove that Action = Profit
